I'm new to commuting in traffic, and I realized immediately that the left turn (US traffic rules, right turn in UK) in an intersection with a traffic light is just dangerous. My basic questions are:
Do I pretend I'm a car and get in line behind the last car waiting?
Pros: I'm forcing people to think of cyclist 'as another car' which is half the battle as far as I'm concerned.
Cons: I don't like sprinting against cars once green if the line is long.
Cozy up next to the first car in line waiting for the light?
